Every day, memories of World War II are disappearing from living history. Men and women who fought and won this great conflict are now in their 90s or older. According to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, as of 2023, only 119,550 of the 16.1 million Americans who served in World War II are still alive.

With less than 1 percent of the veterans from that era remaining, The National WWII Museum’s mission to tell the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world is more crucial than ever.

At The National WWII Museum, we are dedicated to ensuring that the sacrifices and heroism of those who fought in World War II are never forgotten. Our mission is to preserve the memories and experiences of this transformative period in history.

By telling their stories, we honor their legacy and educate future generations about the impact of the war. Through exhibits, artifacts, and educational programs, we strive to create a meaningful connection between visitors and the sacrifices made by these brave men and women.

The National WWII Museum provides a unique and immersive experience that takes visitors on a journey through the war years. From the D-Day invasion to the Pacific Theater, our exhibits bring history to life.

Walk through the interactive displays, view authentic artifacts, and even step inside a restored WWII plane. Our exhibits offer a glimpse into the experiences of soldiers, sailors, and civilians during this pivotal time.

As time goes on, it becomes even more important to ensure that the memories of World War II are preserved and shared. By visiting The National WWII Museum, you are not only paying tribute to the men and women who served but also contributing to the education and understanding of future generations.

Join us in our mission to preserve the legacy of those who fought in World War II, and let their stories live on for years to come.
